What is Sodium silicate?
The sodium silicate, more commonly referred to by the name paohua Alkali, is a kind of inorganic substance and its aqueous solution, generally referred to as sodium sulfate it is a mineral adhesive. In chemical terms, it’s Na2O*nSiO2. It is a water-soluble inorganic silicate with a broad range of applications. Sodium silicate soluble in water is colorless and slightly translucent or transparent glass body. It’s used as a filler, fabric fire retardant and adhesive.
What can Sodium Silicate be used for?
Soaps and detergents
The silicate of sodium is able to enhance the surface effects like wetting with organic surfactants (reducing tension on the surface) and helps to keep small oil particles or dirt floating in detergent, or enhancing the ability to remove dirt from the surface.
The calcium silicate’s alkalinity allows it to counteract acidic soil and facilitate the emulsification and the dispersing of protein.
A cardboard coating can enhance the hardness of the cardboard as well as increase its resistance to the effects of moisture, fire and grease, as well as pests. Silicate can also be used to repel oil by itself.
The sodium silicate may be used as a catalyst for application of auxiliary substances including paraffin, naphthalene chloride, wax, nitrocellulose and other cardboard coatings. It makes the pores smaller on cardboard , and it reduces the amount of water absorption of paper, which reduces the amount of topcoats needed.
Soluble silicate can serve as a cement binder. When Portland is combined with cement components, they undergo chemical reactions that create materials with strong bonding properties. It can also be used to improve the durability of concrete.
Soluble silicate is employed in a number of mineral enrichment techniques. The main use of sodium silicate in ore flotation is as an antiflocculant . It helps remove unwanted siliceous substances. It is only a tiny amount of silicate in a concentration comparable to that used in cleaning operations is required. The ability of silicate to create a sodium ion layer on the surface of the particle is vital in preparing the surface for the specific separation. Silicates from sodium help to stop the corrosion of the ball, thus reducing wear in the mill.
An anionic silica solution that is dilute and provided by soluble silicate can help to prevent corrosion of metal surfaces.
As an additive in water, the dissolved SiO2 will prevent the corroding of storage tanks made of metal and distribution lines. It can reduce the corrosion of pipelines and pumps by acidic water (for instance, from mine drainage); reduces corrosion during grinding with ball rods and can prevent the corrosion of processes equipment as an ingredient in agglomeration, spray drying or dry mixed detergent formulations and also metal parts used in disheswashing and laundry equipment. In the form of a liquid in the permanent automobile cooling system. To be used as an additive in water treatment compounds in boilers and cooling towers.
